2020 has been a strange year, to say the least.  With all the uncertainty surrounding us lately, it’s hard to predict when we’ll be getting back to our normal regular lives. A lot of people are used to taking their vacations during the summertime, but with the country coming to a halt, yet again, many people are changing their plans and choosing to stay local instead.

But some summer activities such as barbecues, trips to the beach, gathering with family members and friends, or anywhere with a pool are not out of reach, something we can still enjoy while socially distancing.

So what are the summer must-haves of 2020?


1. A pair of denim shorts

A good pair of denim shorts is like a good pair of jeans. It’s really hard to find. And although we might own 6 or 7 pairs of them, we all have our favorite pair we end up going with, time and time again.  That favorite pair makes us feel good wearing it and very flattering to our body shape.

Denim shorts are a must-have because they are casual enough but can also be styled up with heels and a nice top. You can wear them with tank tops, t-shirts, oversized shirts and yes, even with a bathing suit doubling as a bodysuit.


2.  A white dress  


Whether you chose a midi or maxi, sleeveless or puff-sleeve, or even a shirt-dress you need to have a nice flowy white dress in your closet this summer. There’s nothing that makes me feel more feminine than wearing a dress and white dresses for summer are a must-have.

3. A pair of low heel sandals

Besides being more comfortable than higher heels, they can also make you look more dressed up and put together. They go great with shorts, skirts, and dresses.


4. White T-shirt

This is the most basic and versatile piece of clothing that you can have in your closet. Not just for summer but in fact, for all seasons. A white shirt can be paired with virtually anything. It can also be dressed up or down, be worn with different patterns and mix and match colors. It looks great with jeans and denim jackets and even under your favorite sleeveless dress.


5. A denim jacket

Speaking of denim, a denim jacket is another closet essential and a must-have. Although in the summertime we don’t usually wear a lot of outerwear, a denin jacket can keep you warm, in those cooler summer evenings/mornings. They’re also great for transition weather.


6. White pants

Just like the white t-shirt, white pants are a staple of summer as well. Besides keeping you cool in those hot summer days, the white pants also can give a very nice casual chic vibe. Not to mention they pair well with any top.


7.  A Maxi dress

Nothing screams summer more than a maxi dress. They’re flowy, light and breezy. Perfect for a hot sunny day. And there are tons of fun patterns to choose from. My favorite is the tropical and flower prints.


8. A pair of comfortable flat sandals

Yes, because they’re quite possibly the most essential shoe in a summer wardrobe and go with all the basic pieces such as shorts, skirts, and dresses.


9.  Sunglasses

Having the perfect pair of glasses can really make any summer outfit complete. Choose any style you like as long as it matches the shape of your face.


10. Bathing suit

And of course, this list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t include the most basic part of any summer wardrobe. The bathing suit.

Whether you chose a two-part suit or a one-piece, finding one that makes you feel comfortable is of the utmost importance. It all comes down to how you feel about your body, so make sure you pick one that will align with your body shape.


Happy shopping and happy summer loves!
